“A break from Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

We love Thai food, but we craved for a good steak and a decend glass of wine and that's what we found here. The garden is beauttful and the food is realy good. A good alterative when you want a break from eastern cuisine.

“Where is the taste?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

They may do a good toast skagen but we made a mistake and had thai food which we asked for medium spicy but it had no taste at all, very bland and more expensive than neighbouring restaurants. Packed with swedish people and I suppose they want their food but why have thai food on the menu then?

“Look twice the beauty is at the back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

This restaurant hides its beauty, you have to go up stairs where there is a covered restaurant and the down again into a beautiful walled garden. The chef and his wife are Swedish so the menu is mixed and the food is to die for.

“Fantastic food and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Lovely food, great service and nice setting. They also have a wide selection of wine and beer. We sat outside at the back of the garden which was all lit up with fairy lights and lanterns.

“Dreadful Thai food, poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The place looks nice and cozy from the outside with garden terrace, so we gave it a try. We soon discovered why we were the only customers on what should be a busy saturday night. No Thai smile here, the waitress was totally uninterested in us, strange considering we were her only clients. We love thai food so decided to go for a classic Tom yam kung and phad peaw wan kai. Boy, what a mistake... I can only describe the Tom Yam Kung as a salty mix of tomato, onion and a few minuscule scampi. Nothing what a Tom yam kung should be. The other dish was equally distasteful. We barely touched our food. I can tell with surety that the chef has no idea nor interest in Thai food. Extremely disappointed in this place and i would not recommend to anyone. Stay away if you want to eat Thai food, the street is loaded with excellent and much cheaper alternatives. The Western menu looked overpriced.
